Jessica Hogan Entrepreneur Profile
Jessica Hogan is the owner of FARMacy, a superfood smoothie delivery business that operates in Charlottesville, with the new addition of a Mexican Fusion food truck. Prior to starting FARMacy, Jessica went to nutrition school, where she graduated and realized that she wanted to help make people feel better about themselves. She was also raised in a healthy household, so that, being paired with nutrition school, really helped Jessica realize exactly what she could do for people. When Jessica saw a Facebook ad for a food truck, she took it as a new opportunity and decided to take FARMacy to a new level with the help of her boyfriend, Gabino. With Gabino’s culinary skills and Jessica’s entrepreneurial skills, they worked together to take FARMacy to the next level. Jessica and Gabino are now looking to eventually open their own restaurant.
Jessica explains that during the Entrepreneur Workshop, she learned how to take an idea for a business, and turn it into a reality. She explains that CIC guided her in the processes of how to set systems up and how to run a business smoothly. Additionally, Jessica feels, "CIC provided me with networking connections, and taught me how to make these networking connections on my own". Jessica advises other CIC entrepreneurs to soak up everything during the Entrepreneur Workshop and be open to change and confident in yourself, because you never know where your next opportunity lies.
